Problem Solved!

In-House TrainingOff the shelf training materials


It’s the small, everyday problems - the ones that need quick but effective solutions - that really take a chunk out of your day. So how do you solve these problems and still leave time for the more complex issues at hand?

Problem Solved! utilizes a 25-item assessment to provide participants with an easy-to-use, 5-step problem-solving process. By using this process, individuals can identify and monitor their skill level at each step.

Learning Outcomes


Problem Solved! is based on a process of 5 steps (The Problem Solved! Process). The instrument takes the perspective that a systematic method of problem solving followed and practiced on a regular basis yields rapid and efficient problem solving (Hesselberth, 1994).

Process, discuss everyday problem solving, apply the Problem Solved! Process to a current problem, and make action plans.
